Answers :

If memory serves these little beasties were made in 1998-99.
Believe it used an Intel Pentium II 350MHz processor, that is the Slot 1 type.

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium-II/TYPE-Desktop%20Pentium%20II.html

It probably has an AOpen AXL6 motherboard, or a Chaintech 6LTM motherboard. Both use the Intel LX440 chipset.

This is all going by memory, as I haven't worked on one in years. I can find no supporting data to give you, as far as a User Guide. I can guide you to the best of my ability if you ask. Just post in a Comment.

Again, if memory serves,
To open the computer case;

1) Looking at the back of the computer. (Computer unplugged from power)
The case has a metal shell going around it. Resembles a U shaped hood, once it is removed.
(Upside down U)
Observe the metal case 'Hood'. Note how the sheet metal of the case hood, comes around the back.

2) There is an inch, (Finger digit), width of sheet metal that comes up each side, and across the top.
In the sheet metal on the sides, I believe there are two screws.
One towards the top, one towards the bottom.
These are removed.

3) There is one screw at the top, I believe. This screw is removed.
Now the hood is pulled away from the rest of the computer. Observing from the back, the hood is slid forward.
Sometimes this is tough to do.

You will have an IDE harddrive inside.
This example shows you what it looks like,

http://computer.howstuffworks.com/hard-disk4.htm

Computer case open. BEFORE you reach inside.
Computer unplugged from power.
TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case to relieve your body of Static.

Your body carries Static electricity. Static will fry out computer hardware components.
Computer unplugged from power, you are safe.
TOUCH the metal frame, your computer is safe.

(Should you get up for any reason, walk away, then return, Touch the metal frame again)

The following is with the utmost respect.

Why are you wishing to know where the harddrive is?
If you are wishing to replace it, it isn't that simple.
You will need a fresh genuine copy of Windows, in order to do so.
Also the Windows version that a Gateway GP6-350
computer is going to support, is Windows 98, or 98SE.
Do you have a Windows 98 disk?

Again, with the utmost respect, trying to upgrade your computer sir, is wasting your money.

There is no Processor upgrade possible. The Processor you have now is the best one for your computer.

The ram memory it uses, (I believe), is SDR Sdram.
(Commonly just referred to as Sdram)

Expensive stuff, in relation to how your money could be used for better computer parts, or computer.

Harddrive upgrade. There is probably a 3GB, 5GB, or 10GB harddrive inside.
Maximum upgrade in size would be around 40GB.
(Maybe)

For the price of a larger harddrive, and an upgrade in ram memory, you could buy a better computer on Ebay. (Don't zap me, I'm only the messenger!)



Jimmy Just so happens I have an old gateway gp6-350--not sure of working status but I believe all the parts are serviceable. The only thing missing is the hard drive. If your interested make me an offer.
